VariousThose Shocking Shaking Days – Indonesian Hard Psychedelic Progressive Rock & Funk 1970 to 1978 (with download) ... LP
Now Again, 1970s. New Copy 3 LPs ... Just Sold Out!
A truly incredible overview of 70s Indonesian funk, rock and psychedelia infused recordings – and it's beautifully put together, to boot – one of the very best compilations yet from Stones Throw's Now Again branch! There's an undercurrent of funk to most of this material, but it's always topped off with prog & psych rhythmic heaviness and dexterity, and usually done with passionate, feverish vocals. The story of Indonesian underground music of the time is a complicated one, and one that's been hard to come by outside of the region, given the difficult political circumstances of the time. This amazing set does a tremendous service for this music. Essential! Includes "Haai" by Panbers, "Anti Gandja" by The Brims, "Bad News" by Rollies, "People" by Super Kid", "Evil War" by Shark Move, "Shake Me" by Aja, "The Promise" by Rhythm Kids, "Uang" by Duo Kribo, "Pantun Lama" by Murry Lama, "Hear Me" by Golden Wing, "Candle Light" by Beny Soebardja And Lizard and more.

✨✧ VariousSoho Continental ... CD
Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Latin rhythms, Italian lyrics, jazzy solos, and lots more groovy touches – all coming together here in a special set of tracks that evokes the cross-cultural brilliance of London's Soho at the end of the 50s! The set's got a really unique vibe – with songs that mix electric guitars and heavy percussion, swinging vocals and rocking rhythms, jazzy scatting and weird instrumentation – all with the completely great ear for a special tune that we've come to expect from the Croydon Municipal label! If you've dug their other compilations, you'll definitely find plenty here to love – on 25 titles that include "Nicola Bossa Nova" by Bob Leaper, "Ciquo Minuti Ancora" by Peppini Di Capri, "Cappucina" by Ted Heath, "Esso Besso" by Victor Silvester, "Cha Cha Pop Pop" by Tony Scott, "Hot Toddy" by The Swe Danes, "Teenager Blues" by The Kessler Sisters, "Harry Lime Cha Cha" by Edmundo Ros, "Taboo" by Charles Blackwell, "Madison A Saint Tropez" by Tommy Kinsman, "Papa Loves Mambo" by Marino Marini, and "Mambo Inn" by The Modernes.

✨✧ VariousSoul Emissaries – Super Funk – Rare Black American Music From The 1970s & 80s ... CD
BGP (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really great entry in the excellent Super Funk series – one that offers up cuts that are every bit as strong on their soulful vocals as they are their funky grooves! The track selection is wonderful – rare cuts from 45s, of the sort that funk diggers have been trading for years – plus some of those extra-special unreleased tracks, which the folks at Ace/BGP always seem able to dig up through their access to the vaults! The notes are filled with rare photos, label scans, and loads of information on the cuts – showing that their selection here wasn't just a random process – and despite the title, most tracks here are 70s numbers from the heavy funk years. Titles include "Dark Skin Woman" by Billy Cee, "Love Highjacker" by George Jackson, "You Bring The Tears" by Sampson & Delilah, "Born To Live With Heartache" by Mary Lvoe, "Sweet Thang" by William Bostic, "Foolish Man (part 2)" by The Huck Daniels Co, "Work It Out" by Marcene Harris, "Jodine" by Earl Harris, "Funky Kingston" by Tribe, "Brother Jack" by The Funky Kids, "Forgotten" by Lamont Johnson, "Daddy Please Stay Home" by Obrey Wilson, and "So Fine" by Chet Ivey & His Fabulous Avengers.

✨✧ VariousSurinam Funk Force – More Boogie & Disco Funk From The Surinamese Dance Floors ... CD
Rush Hour (Netherlands), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A huge range of funky soul cuts from a very surprising source – the nation of Surinam, which didn't earn its independence until the mid 70s – which then seemed to pave the way for a big wave of wonderful music like this! The cuts often have a groove that's more northern hemisphere club than you'd expect from the nation's South American locale – and given that the nation was previously under the control of the Dutch, there's a lot of back/forth action here with European sounds, styles, and studios – which results in some great grooves that have a really unique hybrid in their approach! Rhythms are strong, but never too slick – never totally polished, as in a Euro disco mode – and instead maybe feel like some of the best underground New York material of the period – especially the sort that was drawing influence from communities of new immigrants. Some tracks have straightforward vocals, others have more of a group chant vibe – and most cuts have at least one key jazzy element, which really sharpens up the sound. Titles include "Happines" by Errol De La Fuente, "Born To Boogie" by Steve Watson, "Craziest" by Sonny Khoeblal, "The Funky G" by Sumy, "Love Dance" by Eddie Tailor, "Kaseko Attack" by Ronald Snijders, "Jamasa Roro" by Astaria, "Tirsa Song" by Sound Track Orchestra & Silvy, "Jhoom Le" by Cyntia, "Freedom Is The Thing" by Langa Langa, and "Jammin With The Jam Band" by Jam Band 80.
